KFC - Love is Forever - (2011) :90

Life in reverse, apparently love is forever if you start out by telling your soul-mate "I'm hungry". For KFC, no less.

Interesting strategy. Borrowing - and then adopting the opposite approach to - the John Lewis ad that gripped the UK:

This goes BACKWARDS in time. Clever.
This has a minimal link with the product. Although I suppose it would be funny if the couple got thinner over the 30".
And this fails to have the nation 'weeping into its teacups'. Filling up their buckets, perhaps.


Just so everyone knows which ad you're talking about, it's the one with the worlds worst choice of soundtrack (those lyrics....).

The ad was embedded within the link - but boy, you're fast.


yeps. Figured you didn't know that we had it here in the archive (or that we can add films & images to comments)

It also borrows the soundtrack from the John Lewis Christmas ad - the one that brought on accusation of dog abuse.

It's a twofer.

Hmmmm. A case of Demo Love perhaps?

Can I please get the name of the song and the artist because its such a beautiful track.

Ellie Goulding- "Your Song"
